BeWell Talks

Free Workplace Wellness Presentations & Workshops

Ballet Austin's Butler Center for Dance & Fitness engages, educates, and empowers people of all skill levels, ages, and economic and cultural backgrounds to adopt healthy lifestyles. 

Two of Ballet Austin's core values include encouraging lifelong health and well-being and enriching our community.

We desire to connect with the Austin community to inspire and encourage people to develop habits for lifelong health and well-being.

Through participation in local healthy living and fitness opportunities, Ballet Austin's annual Get Fit event, unique workouts designed for older adults and breast cancer survivors, and our free BeWell Talks, we hope to be a resource for individuals, organizations and businesses.

Are you looking for a fun team building activity, or something creative to do with your group or work colleagues?  Dance is a fun and fantastic way to build camaraderie through a shared experience with your group. It's also great physical activity for your wellness program. Or just make it a Dance Party! Your group or organization can find out more and book a private group class here
